Waiting for chicks to hatch

Lifecycles and all its wonders remain a favourite with the children, and our current activities include the lifecycles of bees, butterflies, frogs and chickens. The children have been very lucky this term as we’ve had the pleasure of bringing 7 chicks into the world from 10 eggs which we incubated.

We all greatly enjoyed watching and listening to the chicks hatching. It was a fascinating process and it was lovely to see the children learn empathy with another living creature and understanding the need to be very gentle.
